The global sensor manufacturer, Trans-Tek, received two key industry certifications: the ISO 9000 certification for quality management and the AS9100 quality certification for the aerospace industry. The company earned these internationally recognized distinctions following a lengthy and extensive audit of its business practices to ensure they meet demanding standards in quality, productivity, consistency and traceability.
In addition to providing marketplace assurances, businesses that meet and maintain ISO standards are better able to manage costs through improved systems and processes, increase customer satisfaction, access new markets, and reduce environmental impact.
AS9100 is based on the ISO 9000 quality system requirements, and is designed specifically by the aerospace industry to satisfy Department of Defense, NASA and Federal Aviation Administration-driven requirements.
“As a company with a strong reputation locally, nationally and internationally, we knew the time was right to pursue the ISO 9000 and AS9100 certifications as hallmarks of our ongoing business growth,” said Nancy Hamilton, president and CEO at Trans-Tek. “These certifications assure our customers throughout the world and within the aerospace and avionics industries that we are solidly committed to meeting standards they expect and deserve. We appreciate the time and energy our entire company put forth to achieve these certifications and know they reflect our true dedication to quality and superior customer satisfaction.”
Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. Founded in 1947, the ISO has published more than 21,000 standards covering almost all aspects of technology and business. More than 3,000 technical bodies from 163 member countries work together to establish standards for the organization.
